WHY ATTEND #1

The People

“We are not your standard conference. We are not quite a retreat. GBCI Europe Circle lives in between, a reunion serving to empower community and accelerate a movement. We aim to strengthen connections, elevate knowledge and skills, and energize because our progress in the next five years will shape the future of Europe. If you build green and healthy, come join us. Together, we can transform our built environment for the generations to come.”

WHY ATTEND #5

The Purpose

“There may be no better time than this to be in Athens discussing “Healthy Human Habitat”. On one hand are the healthy human bona fides here in Greece: the Olympics were born here, it is a center for the Mediterranean Diet, and is home to one of the world’s five BlueZones®, to name a few. On the other hand, drought, fires and floods all ravaged this historic and idyllic landscape last year, in ways beyond record and recent memory. So what better place to come together than the cradle of Western civilization to examine the present and future of the built environment? What better place to discuss the future of healthy humans and their habitat than at the crossroads where philosophy and urbanism, climate change and vitality all meet.”
